Nick Crane, from Wiltshire and Swindon Users Network, said: “Help to Live at Home adopts a person centred approach to care which will enable people to maintain their independence, remain in their homes and live the life they want, with the support they need, for longer. The Wiltshire and Swindon Users’ Network supports this service and is pleased to be involved, assisting with the monitoring and quality assurance of Help to Live at Home, by a group of independent, interested local people.”
